This is the final post in the series on the Zentangle® workshop I took last weekend with Martha Huggins and Molly Hollibaugh. I'd be the first to say how lucky I am that I had the chance to do this.
Here were the final tiles that we did, and their mosaics (if that language is foreign to you, have a look at the first post in the series, on May 20th).
Of course, we then put our tiles together into one large mosaic. Look at the variations.
And now for something completely different. After the above exercise, we went on and practiced doing "embedded letters." This was great fun. We could use our own initials, or someone else's initials, or just use initials of words with meaning to us. Here was mine:
Here's the wild mosaic that was made by everyone's embedded letters:
Such variation. Truly lovely.
And we finished - and ran a bit overtime, which meant we didn't get to do a mosaic on this one - with one tiny Bijou tile using Huggins:
It's no surprise that we were all exhausted after all that drawing. But good-exhausted. What a weekend. There was a surprise appearance by Rick and Maria, the founders of Zentangle, on Saturday afternoon, but the weekend was owned by Martha and Molly. Fabulous job, ladies. Thank you.
